Ancient Roman Gloves – level 1

27-02-2018 07:00

A long time ago, the Roman Empire is big. England is part of it.

Roman soldiers do boxing back then. They use boxing gloves.

Now people find a pair of these boxing gloves. They find them in northern England.

This is a special moment. These gloves are the only pair in the world.

Difficult words: Roman Empire (a very big country of the past; Romans come from Italy), boxing (a sport where you try to fight the best by hitting and punching).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
